Micah reads

One of Micah’s favorite books is about a little wombat who likes to curl up in a ball. We usually read to him before bedtime but Micah also enjoys reading to himself on the changing table while we change his diapers.

Pear

We’ve had to come up with various ways to keep Micah entertained while he sits in his playpen by himself. One day I gave him a pear, thinking that he would just play with it.

I stepped away to prepare dinner and before long, I noticed that Micah was really quiet. Turns out that Micah was actually taking big bites out of the whole pear that I just gave him. I guess it’s a good thing that he’s putting all those teeth he has to use.

Mike and Alice’s Wedding

We were all invited to a wedding last month – Mike and Alice are friends of ours from church and they asked us to help out at their ceremony. It was a big day for all of us. Christina was playing the piano and I was setting up all the audio equipment.

We had to coerce Micah to take an early morning nap (which he protested to) so that he would last through the whole afternoon. He did eventually fall asleep much to our relief.

Since we both had our hands full for the day, we asked a a couple of our friends (who were also invited to the wedding) to watch Micah for the afternoon. Micah seemed to enjoy being outside in the cool weather watching everyone rush around him. The wedding was really beautiful and everyone had a lot of fun.

We were all really tired but happy at the end of the day and best of all, Micah slept really soundly that night.

Birthday Party

Haven’t really had time to blog much these last few months. Out weekends are filled with either birthday parties, farewell parties and dinners with friends and colleagues.

One of the more memorable events was in May when we were all invited to Suvali’s birthday party.  Micah had a ton of fun playing with the other kids (all older than him) and jumping around in the inflatable bouncy castle.
